IMHO if you can split the file in more than one .org file you'll get a better experience.

I've been working on machines with less than 8Gb of ram in files that are bigger than yours ( 1.2Mb org with lots of latex, R and other things )
and haven't got a trouble. 

One thing that 've noticed is that, if I start the whole text shown, manipulating the file is much slower than if I got only the section I'll work on at that time. You'll probably should give it a try, e.g. opening only the section you'll work on.

Try approaching this the same way that you would prepare an ECM:


Start Emacs with a stable version of Org-Mode, without any additional configuration. 

Is the performance what you expect?

FWIW: two things that sped up my rather small in comparison Org-Mode files were:
- Switching from linum to nlinum
- #+STARTUP: showeverything

I'm working on an org-mode file about cancer which is 945.1kb, is
converted to a tex file of 1.0mb and a pdf of 2.0mb with 505 pages. The
conversion is done through this code snippet '(global-set-key (kbd
"s-#") 'org-latex-export-to-latex)'. There is no problem with the
conversion to tex or conversion to pdf.

However, the org-mode file is increasingly slowing down and becoming
difficult to move about within the file, and also enter new information
within it.

How then can I speed it up within the org file please?
